Yeah- nothing I even own or have ever worked on needs "tork" on any crazy long bolts and as far as cam sequencing, the cam grinder pretty much took care of that.

There's a reason to do it the right way, so follow the procedure from the factory. You miss a step on a lightweight engine like that and you'll be doing the job again.

Don't half *** it, go it right.
